Forums - Movies Discussion - Henry Cavill cast as The Witcher!

Hmm, is this karma?

"Henry Cavill reportedly out as Superman in stunning DC movie universe shakeup"

Around the Network

Don't hate it, but i don't love it either

Yeah, they badly need to give him some scars before filming. Geralt has been hunting dangerous monsters for decades before the start of this series, they honestly think it is believable for him to a have a flawless pretty boy face like that? He looks more like an Elf from LOTR or Lucius Malfoy from Harry Potter than Geralt right now. amount of makeup will make him the right choice for that role.

Yeah no. It just looks bad. He needs a beard, scars, and shorter hair.

Eh... not a good choice. They just picked him because he's famous and will appeal to people that don't care about the games.

Off the top of my head... better choices would have been Jean Claude Van Damme, John Cena, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, Mark Wahlberg, Dolph Lundgren or Michael B Jordan.

I don't really mind the long hair and no beard, since they are going for a younger look than we saw in Witcher 3 (Geralt actually had longer hair and no beard in Witcher 1), but he definitely needs scars, he looks like too much of a pretty boy to be a monster hunter currently.

He definitely needs some more facial hair. I presume this is pre-production, so there's nothing to worry about.

Give him more facial hair and put a scar over his eye and I think he'd look fine.
